Abstract [sv]

Fotbollen har under de senaste årtiondena genomgått stora förändringar; den har globaliserats och kommersialiserats. Det har, bland annat, inneburit att antalet supportrar som följer ett lag på distans har ökat. På ett internetforum på SvenskaFans.com, som är Sveriges största sportcommunity, samlas en del av alla de svenska distanssupportrar som stödjer det italienska fotbollslaget AS Roma.

Via observationer och utifrån Erving Goffmans dramaturgiska perspektiv och Sarah Thorntons teorier kring det subkulturella kapitalet undersöks vad som ger status bland distanssupportrarna på forumet. Undersökningen på forumet används som ett ”case” för att kunna säga något om subkulturer och status i allmänhet.

Abstract [en]

Football has during the last decades gone through some major changes. The beautiful game has both been globalised and commercialised. As a consequence, the number of supporters that aren’t locally tied to a certain football club, so called ”long-distance supporters”, has increased. At SvenskaFans.com, Sweden’s largest sporting community, many of Sweden’s long-distance supporters of the Italian outfit AS Roma get together in the forum part of the community and discuss everything there is to discuss about the club.  

Through observations, and using Erving Goffman’s dramaturgical approach for human interaction and Sarah Thornton’s theories about subcultural capital as analytical tools, the subject of status amongst the supporters is examined. The analysis is used as a case for a broader and general understanding of subcultures and status.
